The Catholic Diocese of Syracuse has found credible evidence that as many as nine of its priests sexually abused children, but has not made their names public.
Bishop Robert Cunningham might change that. He’s considering publishing the names of every priest against whom the church has found credible allegations of child sexual abuse.
Cunningham said he’s been thinking about a request from Kevin Braney, a Colorado man who says Monsignor Charles Eckermann raped him as a child at a Manlius church 25 years ago.
Eckermann would be on the list. The diocese and the Vatican found Braney’s accusations credible.
